Katy Perry Is Latest Celeb To Make Carly Rae Jepsen “Call Me Maybe” Cover Video
Katy Perry is the latest superstar singer to shoot a homemade video of herself and friends partying along to Bieber protégé and Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen's undeniably catchy hit, "Call Me Maybe." After a video featuring Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and friends goofing along to the song went viral, thousands of YouTubers have been chiming in with their own videos, including actor James Franco.
While by the swanky pool of what is likely a rented house in near the Coachella Music Festival last weekend ("Coachella!" cheers were made during the video), Katy Perry and friends danced with inflatable monkeys, posed, and acted adorably silly for the camera while blasting the song. Towards the end, Perry took over the camera, giving her friends direction to emulate the Bieber video and ended the shot with "We love you Justin Bieber!" The freshly purple-haired singer allowed herself the luxury of singing along to the song effortlessly (read: poorly), which I'm sure is always a well-deserved respite for her chart-topping pipes.
For those of you who may not have experienced the off-site Coachella phenomenon, renting a house with a pool, stuffing it with besties, and partying from morning to night is the essential way to do Coachella when you're not at the festival! Don't we all wish we were having that much fun with Katy and friends?
